    Oh But, I really like this one

    Its really pretty, but I know what you mean about taking a long time. However, as you do more you will get quicker. I started of taking 2 hours for 1 block but now I can do 2 in 3 hours. Its taking that darned paper off the back that takes the time LOL

    I found a really easy one called Godey┤s Star, See what you think. It was going to be my next one if this one didn˝t work out.

    Thanks Judy..

    Elle, I could live with 2 hours easily!!! I really don't know how long it took. I tried working on it during the holidays and I could only do a little here...a little there..I know it took 2 days but have no idea how long each day. Anyway, I think I'll try another :wink:

    I think we came up with the idea that I was just going to send you the money for the return postage. If that is still okay with you that works well for me. Just let me know. Thanks!

    Great, problem solved. I have just the 12 blocks (on no. 9 at the moment), so it shouldn┤t be too much.

    You just need to make sure that you mail them so that they arrive to me on or before March 1. If your blocks are here, you will be in the exchange..if they are late,, Ill return them to you..

    I will add your name to the list,, look in the first post of this thread for my address..

    I love all these stars I am seeing!! I am starting mine this week! I feel so far behind! I am so excited to do this and actually make something for me! I finally got my pattern and material finalized this week!
    I am looking forward to seeing which stars I recieve!
    If my camera is working I will try to get one posted this week for you to see. Seeing all this beautiful work is making me nervous! I have only been quilting for a little over a year now!

    K, here is my block for the exchange. I don't think anyone else is doing the same one, if I'm wrong, let me know and I'll find another one

    This is the first one, so 11 more to go.
    It's not paper pieced, so my points don't all match up very well, but I'm sure I can correct that on the other 11.





    BTW, I still want to do one that has more than just 2 colours in it, so I may in fact, change my mind later on, lol!

    Very Pretty Melanie!!! If you want more than two colors, you could do the pinwheel in the center a second blue, just an idea :D
